Windows Media Player 9 (Spyware)

#1
Don’t know what to make of this but all who have downloaded the beta version of Media-Player (XP) you need to be aware that if you have an Internet connection open and play any music file and then click on album details a unique ID of your machine is created and sent to MS at Redmond along with other info (lots). Is this spywhare?

If I hand not got the systems in place to trap this sort of thing would have gone un-noticed. This is unacceptable!!!

Anyone else trapped this or am I just getting more and more cynical?

WMP 8 did the same thing.
if you are really paronoid about MS getting your detail (They probebly have them anyway) Install firewall and block WMP9 internet accses.
